Another instalment of Gift Guides is here! And this week we are shopping for that awesome Dungeon Master or RPG Player in your life. From beginners to seasoned players, we can help you get the perfect gift for the holiday season!

As of this posting, all items are currently in stock.

D&D Starter Set

The newly revamped Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set is your gateway to action-packed stories of the imagination. This box contains the essential rules of the game plus everything you need to play heroic characters on perilous adventures in worlds of fantasy. Explore subterranean labyrinths! Plunder hoards of treasure! Battle legendary monsters! Ideal for a group of 4 – 6, the Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set includes a 64-page adventure book with everything the Dungeon Master needs to get started, a 32-page rulebook for playing characters level 1 – 5, 5 pre-generated characters, each with a character sheet and supporting reference material, and 6 dice.   

Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons

Meet Fizban the Fabulous: doddering archmage, unlikely hero of the War of the Lance, divine avatar of a dragon-god—and your guide to the mysteries of dragonkind in the worlds of Dungeons & Dragons. Dragonslayers and dragon scholars alike will appreciate the new dragon-themed options for players eager to harness the power of dragon magic and create unique and memorable draconic characters. Dungeon Masters will discover a rich hoard of new tools and information for designing dragon-themed encounters, adventures, and campaigns. Discover a host of new dragons and other creatures. Learn about the lairs and hoards of each type of dragon, and how hoards focus the magic that suffuses dragons and connects them to the myriad worlds of the Material Plane.

The Wild Beyond the Witchlight

Once every eight years, the fantastic Witchlight Carnival touches down on your world, bringing joy to one settlement after the next. Its owners, Mister Witch and Mister Light, know how to put on a good show. But there’s more to this magical extravaganza than meets the eye! The Wild Beyond the Witchlight takes adventurers from the Witchlight Carnival to Prismeer, a Feywild domain of delight, and is designed for characters of levels 1–8. This book comes with a poster map that shows the carnival on one side and Prismeer on the other.

Zombicide RPG

There’s a zombie plague overrunning the world. The recently-dead are roaming around, hunting the living, ready to tear them apart on sight. Some survivors chose to hide away in bunkers or caves, but that’s not you. You’re going to attack these zombies head on. You’re going to commit Zombicide. In Zombicide: Chronicles – The Roleplaying Game, players take on the role of survivors of the zombie apocalypse. They must learn to work together, trust one-another, and form strategies to fight the zombies if they want to stay alive.

Dungeons & Dragons Class Token Sets

These Token Sets are designed to allow you to easily and quickly track your character’s status effects. If your character is frightened, paralyzed, or unconscious, your allies will be able to see at a glance that you are in need of help. Because all of these full-color tokens are made of durable perspex, they are wet-erasable, so you can write additional information straight onto them. The combat tile provides a place for you to keep a running total of constantly changing statistics like character health and resources, all without dirtying your character sheet with eraser marks. Each token set includes a class tin, a combat tile, and 20 regular tokens with 1 large inspired token. Some classes have additional tokens dedicated for that class.

Miniatures and Dice

When in doubt, players and DM’s can never have to many miniatures or dice!

Check Out Runewars: the Miniatures Game on Thursdays

by: on May 5, 2017  |  

Runewars Miniatures Game is new from Fantasy Flight Games and is their first foray into an unpainted model-based tactical miniatures game.  In this game, you get the amazing game play of a tactical miniatures game while skipping the ‘put together the models’ phase.  You can play right out of the box!  The miniatures are A-Mazing! and you can paint them to add your own unique spin on your armies.

If you don’t know how to paint miniatures, we’ll teach you!  Join our Learn to Paint Miniatures event the fourth Sunday of each month!

From Fantasy Flight:

For years, the armies of Waiqar the Undying have stayed within their borders, launching only minor raids across the border. But now, a nameless threat stirs within the Mistlands, and legions of undead cross into the realm of Terrinoth under Waiqar’s command! The Daqan Lords have sounded the call to war, and their finest generals lead armies of warriors and golems to take up defensive positions in the border territory of Roth’s Vale. The first battles of the next great war are about to begin. 

RuneWars: The Miniatures Game is a two-player miniatures game of battles between the great powers of Terrinoth. In each game, you and your opponent will gather armies of miniatures and lead them into battle—blocks of infantry will maneuver for position, cavalry wings will wheel and slam into a weakened flank, and monstrous rune golems or carrion lancers will smash through formations of lesser warriors. Innovative command tools, two distinct factions, and countless ways to customize your experience combine to offer an unparalleled miniatures gaming experience in RuneWars. Finally, with forty-eight beautifully sculpted, unpainted figures, you’ll be able to paint and customize your armies to bring an entirely unique touch to your games and enter the hobby of miniatures painting!
